After an overnight in Budapest, Eric and I caught a night train to Transylvania, a northern region of Romania. I did not realize it existed outside of Bram Stoker's masterpiece until Eric assured me it was a real place. We started our Transylvanian exploration in Brasov.
I had no idea what to expect from Romania. We had heard conflicting stories from friends and I was concerned about getting around. After a month in England, I was also nervous about heading back to countries where I didn't speak the language. However, most people we encountered in Brasov spoke English, which made visiting easy.
